Leave of absence

Hey Monkeys,

I am in a peculiar situation and need your advice. I am a senior who was slated to return to a BB after graduation. But I had to take a medical leave from my university because I had a mental health and controlled substance abuse issue.

I feel like a completely different person than the hungry kid I was recruiting for this opportunity. It's hard for me to put together sentences, hold conversations, and I am completely devastated and fallen into a pit of depression from this because doctors do not know exactly what the root cause of the issue is or when I will recover. Nothing brings joy and my emotions along with cognition are blunted.

Realistically, I think I will need a year off to get to a similar operating level as my intern time and to return to school.

Feeling washed up because I worked really hard to get this job and I no longer remember the effort and the grind and am unsure of what I need to do to get back to a baseline operating level, but thoughts or words of advice on how to approach the situation and if they'd be willing to accommodate?
